ATEX & IECEx: Cam Switches Phoenix Ex
Equipment for potentially explosive atmospheres.

| II 2D Ex tb IIIC T85°C Db | Zone 21-22 (Dust) | Tamb = -20°C /+55°C | IP65 |

New Cam Switches ATEX e IECEx in aluminium alloy case painted in grey RAL 7035 and yellow 102C PANTONE, to be used in zones 21 e 22 (Dust) with rated current from 12A to 40A.

Reference standards: EN 80079-34, EN 60947-3, EN60079-0, EN60079-31.
Directive: ATEX 2014/34/EU.

Zone 21: area in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air is likely to occur occasionally in normal operation.
Zone 22: area in which an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.

Protection by enclosures (Ex “tb”).
Ex ta/tb/tc Da/Db/Dc II 1/2/3 D in accordance with IEC 60079-0; 60079-31.
The enclosure is sealed so tight, that no combustible dust can enter. The surface temperature of external enclosure is limited.


  • Minimum degree of protection in accordance with IEC/EN 60529 ≥ IP 6X.
  • Consideration of dust accumulating on the surface and reduction of permissible surface temperature with dust layer ≥ 5 mm are possible.

The Cam Switches PHOENIX Ex Series, can be in-volved in different application, from automation industry to food machines (professional coffee machines, pasta production, bottling machines, …) passing through the supply of engines, use in dis-tribution switchboards and controls for profession-al welders. Thanks to the type of protection they are able to offer, they can be used in hazardous ar-eas with potential explosive atmospheres.


  • PO & PX Series from 12A, 16A and 20A (Maximum 3 wafers)
  • C0 & CX Series from 25A, 32A, 40A (Maximum 2 wafers)

By request it is possible to supply special electrical configurations (for example: electric closures, n° of positions, switching angles, etc.)
